Grow Your Blog

I told myself and others 2014 was going to be a great year for blogging. I plan to do more reviews, DIY, crafts, recipes, & a little more about my personal life.

I do this on my spare time and free time. I love blogging & I think it’s fun. I’m sure a lot of you feel like this but a lot of people don’t understand. My brother wants me to start a blog for him { he’s joking } so he can get a lot of free stuff or get paid to do blogging things. I told him a ton of time and effort goes into this little hobby.

A few tips I’ve picked up along the way that have helped grow my blog. I haven’t been using these techniques long at all, more like a month. My networks have shot up which makes me happy.

These are only a few links I reference. I absolutely love Pinterest because that is where I found all of these great articles. Pinterest is a great way to find ways to step out of your comfort zone in your blogging world. These tools & tips will help you focus, schedule, & execute your blog plan.

    Cheers to you Leslie, for a prosperous 2014!
    I’m hoping to step up my game also, get more involved with my blog. I’ve been terrible since before Christmas. So much going on in life, just kept putting me behind. It may be April/May before I can get on a regular agenda again! Thanks for sharing, very much appreciated.
